Texcare Asia, the International Trade Fair for Modern Textile Care, will take place in Hong Kong next year from May 9 –11, at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center. Held once every four years, the event attracted over 2,500 trade visitors in Singapore for the 1998 show.
The 2002 event in Hong Kong is expected to cover around 6,000 square meters and house approximately 100 manufacturers displaying textile care related products and services, for all aspects of the laundry and dry cleaning industries.
NEW ORLEANS, LA -- This year’s Clean ’01, held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans lived up to its reputation of attracting professionals from all segments of the garment and textile care industries. The show’s 16,546 attendees were rewarded with access to the products and services of 562 exhibiting companies, showcased in over 270,757 net square feet of floor space.
Las Vegas, home of glitz and entertainment is once again home for The Clean Show. While days will mostly be filled with catching up with industry peers, there’s plenty of ways to spend a few hours after the convention. The best part is, you don’t even have to leave the strip to enjoy most of these attractions.
The Clean Show can be one of the most effective tools for networking and information gathering in our industry. However, many of us find that every time we go to a trade show, we wind up getting side tracked with conversation about a new item or unique strategy. Then before you know it the show is over and it's time to head home.
There are plenty of reasons why the city known as “N’awlins” consistently ranks in the top five most popular destinations in the United States. So if you can manage some free time during the upcoming convention, we’ve compiled some tourist highlights for your enjoyment.

A Gruesome Laundry Surprise
PHOENIX, Ariz. — A body in a bin was discovered by employees at a Sodexo commercial laundry facility. The body arrived on a delivery truck from medical facilities in Tucson. Team members who were unloading the bins first noticed blood on the sheets then discovered the body in one of the bins. The man, a transient, had previously slept in the laundry-bag area near the Tucson medical facility. It is believed that the man either died from a medical condition or was suffocated by the plastic bags. The body showed no signs of trauma or foul play.
